Hey Roadies! It's Katrina from Paper, Scissors and Glue with a quick and fun idea for his and her tags. Take basically the same design and mix it up for a male or female!
My general design was a tag on a tag. Maya Road has such great tags to work with and use to embellish, you cannot go wrong! I started with a basic manila tag that I covered with some pattern paper. Then I started building on that. Let's take a look at the female tag.
I colored a wooden tag with a blue gelato color and water then let dry. Attach your yellow scallop trim first and the using foam adhesive place your tag on top of it. Find a flower that you like and add it to the bottom of the tag. I added the resin owl, well because he is cute! If the tag is for a birthday gift, a cute idea is to add the age of the birthday person! We all know that girls are forever 29!
Now, the male tag was a little harder to come up with something, but we know blue works! So I started with blue pattern paper and then built on that. Let's take a look.
I decided that sticking to a blue/black/kraft color scheme would be the way to go. I cut the stars from the Star & Arrow Pins and adhered them to a blackboard post tag. I didn't want to pile a lot on the male tag, so I kept it simple, but still fun.
And on both tags, I used a glitter pen and doodled or used faux stitching just to dress them up a bit. So get out there and create some tags for your next gift the you are giving. It will make it a little more personal and you will have fun creating tags! Happy Friday!
